Parallels Partner Storefront is now built into Plesk Panel and allows service provider partners to quickly and easily monetize small business customers by selling commercial applications in a revenue-share model with Parallels. The Storefront is easy to activate and centralizes client ordering, billing and subscriptions. This is a wonderful addition to the new version.

2. Service Plans Replace Templates

They have done a great job to increase performance and make it easier to use.

6. Upgrades Just Got Better

9. Improved Security

To improve password security you will be assigned random default passwords, this means server protection from hackers and less hassle due to broken passwords. Parallels has also improved the overall security and performance, in their own words,  “FastCGI lets you isolate sites in a shared hosting environment and limit the resources available to each user, resulting in increased uptime for your customers, enhanced customer satisfaction, and reduced churn. When you use Plesk Panel 10 with Cloud Linux, you also get SecureLVE jail shell support, enabling you to isolate data as well..”

10. Server Health Monitor

You will never worry about your servers again because this feature makes health monitoring so easy. You can configure the automatic notifications to your own thresholds.
